don't have the answer to that yet. we know the fbi is in libya right now. they arrived on tuesday. they're joining other u.s. officials as well as libyans there to investigate the attack, and i think right now we're still hearing from libyan officials. then this was preplanned. in other words, that the attackers used that protest against the anti-muslim film as a dediversion, and others say it wasn't necessarily preplanned, but it was an attack that was mounted with heavy machinery and heavy weaponry against both the consulate and also we shouldn't forget a mile away from the consulate in what was considered a safehouse. >> it's cluner how long the fbi will be there to gather their information. thank you so much. appreciate it where are. >>> what can our past tell us about our future? the attack of the u.s. consulate in libya is not the first time america has been targeted like that? up next we talk with a man who was national security advisor in 1979 when the u.s. embassy was taken over in iran. and a controversial experiment to reduce the number of murders in el salvador. ahhhh
